LexisNexis COVID-19 Resource Centre

The Law Trust Chair in Social Justice is partnering with LexisNexis.

COVID-19 represents a common enemy that we are all fighting across the globe. It continues to test all aspects of our societies - our people, our infrastructure, our systems and processes - and indeed, even our understanding and implementation of the Rule of Law.

Legal technology company, LexisNexis South Africa, has drawn upon its global expertise to launch a COVID-19 Free Resource Centre aimed at informing the public of its rights and responsibilities during this period, as well as the rights and obligations of employers, employees and businesses.

The COVID-19 portal provides free access to a convenient online platform housing resources and information that cover a variety of general public themes such as Labour Law, Immigration, Property and Planning, as well as Notices, Court Directives and Regulations pertaining to COVID-19.

The site also includes commentary from legal experts around the country on emerging themes and topics around COVID-19 matters. In addition, LexisNexis’s editorial team has made available COVID- 19 legislation and regulation changes on the same site at no cost to the public. This provides direct access to a consolidated and authoritative source of COVID-19 regulatory information, together with useful tips, data and other helpful resources.
